Notable Horsemen and Horses

Reach Milestone

This Past Weekend

From the Atlantic to the Pacific, this past Labor Day weekend might have seen some of the most talented horsemen and women pave the most notable record breaking accomplishments in recent times.


Team Roper Charly Crawford who recently suffered the unexpected loss of his horse Patron qualified for the National Finals Rodeo for the 8th. time in his career and with a big late rush through the summer rodeo season finished as the number 5 team roping header in the world.  Thanks to fellow cowboy Trevor Brazille, who lent Charly his horse in this past weekends event.

Josephina Nor-Lantzman’s Chello Z, who has avoided joint injections and stuck with a daily dose of LubriSynHA Joint Formula took the $50,ooo Grand Prix of Show Park World Cup Qualifier, at Del Mar.  Josephina has risen through the ranks to become one of the premier Grand Prix riders on the West Coast.

On the thoroughbred racing front, there is so much to report.  On the West Coast, Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer tied for the  the leading trainers title at the recently completed Del Mar Summer meet.  Mr. Hollendorfer won 20 races and was the lead in purse money with over $1,950,000.00 Trainer Hollendorfer, a LubriSyn and Re-Borne user, scored the GI Pacific Classic victory with the talented three year old Shared Belief, defeating older horses of the first time in his career.


On the East Coast, Trainer Todd Pletcher captured the trainers title at Saratoga for the 5th consecutive season.  Mr. Pletcher’s key winners this meet were, Palace Malace in the Whitney Handicap and  Fashion Alert who is two for two in stake company.  Mr. Pletcher trusts all of his horses to a LubriSynHA Joint Formula and Re-Borne Whole Bovine Colostrum regimen daily.

On Saturday, Wise Dan, returned in good form by taking the Bernard Baruch Handicap at Saratoga.  In early June,  Wise Dan had his connections concerned as he had a bout with colic.  Wise Dan, fortunately didn’t require colic surgery, but it was a serious set back just the same.  The 7-year-old gelding was training impressive when retuning to the track after the illness.  Trainer Charlie Lopresti felt confident enough to seek out a race for the son of Wiseman’s Ferry.  The win in the Bernard Baruch gave Wise Dan a 3 for 3 record so far this year, with earnings of $659,310.

Trainer Charlie Lopresti has had confidence in Re-Borne in keeping Wise Dan healthy and able to bounce back quicker then normal from his brush with colic.

So far in 2014, horsemen coast to coast are getting the message on what LubriSyn and Re-Borne can aid with keeping that million dollar horse on track and not in the stall.

Dick Lundy (L), is shown here with his mentor, the late Charlie Whittingham, will be a guest speaker at Belterra Park Racetrack this Saturday at 10:00AM.

Halstrum, LLC President,

Richard J. Lundy

 will be a guest speaker

along with Horse Owner Marty Grunder

and Fair Winds Farm’s Kimpton Williams.

With the recent addition to slot machine revenue, Ohio racing could be a lucrative place to test the waters in owning a thoroughbred racehorse.  Getting your picture taken in the winners circle is every horse owners dream, but what does it take to get a horse to achieve that goal?

This Saturday, July 26th, Belterra Park Racetrack and the Ohio Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners association are teaming up to help educate the new racehorse owner.  At 10:00am, at the west end of the grandstand, there will be a seminar with a question and answer session to guide the new owner in the sport of kings.

Guest speakers scheduled to participate in the seminar is horse owner, Marty Grunder, who was part owner in the grade I winning filly, In Lingerie, a winner of over $700,000 in 2012.  Mr. Grunder is also the President and CEO of Grunder Landscaping which is based in Miamisburg, OH.

Also, Kimpton Williams, who is co-owner of Fair Winds Farm along with his wife Lori, is also scheduled to be a guest speaker at the event.  Mr. Williams is an owner-breeder who stands some formidable stallions at his Waynesville, OH farm.  The farm recently acquired popular west coast runner, Kettle Corn, who is by Candy Ride (ARG).  Also the veteran, Mercer Mill has been at the leading stallion for nine straight years from 2001 to 2010, is a permanent resident there. Stately Victor, graded stake winner and grade I placed winner of over $900,000 is also among the new stallions on the roster. Stately Victor is a son of Ghostzapper out of Collect the Cash by Dynaformer.

Former Champion Horse Trainer and Halstrum, LLC President, Richard J. Lundy will also be a guest speaker at the event.  Mr. Lundy was lucky enough to gain his tutelage under Hall of Fame trainer Charlie Whittingham before venturing out on his own in the early 1980′s.  During the first few years as a private trainer for Payson Thoroughbreds, Mr. Lundy trained Carr De Naskra to win the 1984 Grade I Travers Stakes at Saratoga Racetrack.  Other notable horses Mr. Lundy had trained were, Salem Drive, Lac Ouimet, Breeders Cup Winner Opening Verse and Champion older horse Blushing John.  During the 1980′s and 90′s Richard Lundy was the most sought after trainer in the country, training for Sheik Mohammed, Virginia Kraft Payson, Hickory Tree Farm and Allen Paulson, just to name a few.

The seminar gets underway at 10:00AM, but if you get to the track early enough you can catch a glimpse of the thoroughbreds training over the track.

Bring plenty of questions as you will be able to gain some of the knowledge these Ohio horsemen have to share. Of course, keep your future equine athlete healthy with the LubriSynHA family of Products!

Chad Masters & Charly Crawford Roping Clinic Recap

LubriSynHA was honored to host the Chad Masters & Charly Crawford Roping Clinic this past weekend at Allday Farm and Arena in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Nineteen headers and nine heelers got the opportunity to learn from the two-time World Champion Header and seven-time NFR Qualifier. “I went to a roping school to brush up on a few things. I ended up learning more from two headers than I have from any heeler in 22 years of roping!”

Roping Clinic

We were also pleased to include the presence of a talented writer and long time friend, Jennie Rees. Jennie was nice enough to write a nice recap of her Q&A with the cowboys when they visited Keeneland in Lexington, KY on Friday.

Thank you to all of those who helped arranged this great event and we look forward to putting on another in the future!



LubriSynHA Sponsored Horseman Jason Smith

LubriSynHA is proud to sponsor the best of the best in the equine industry. We are thrilled to partner with great horseman Jason Smith with Jason Smith Quarter Horses. We were able to get with Jason and ask him some questions about his operation and his use of LubriSynHA.

struttin 2013 youth world copy

Q: How long have you been in your industry?

I have been involved with the Quarter Horses and Livestock for over 30 years. My family and I participate in Western Pleasure, Halter, Livestock and 4H, and many more activities.

Q: Where are you from? Where do you reside now?

I am originally from Douglas, Wyoming. We currently call Whitesboro, Texas home.

Q: What organizations do you currently belong to?

I am currently a member of the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), the American Paint Horse Association (APHA), and the Palomino Horse Breeders Association (PHBA). I am also a founding member of the World Confirmation Horse Association (WCHA).

Q: How do you typically start your day?

My family and I start our days by feedings and caring for all of our horses in training. We carefully look over each animal, checking their body condition, feet, and overall appearance. Daily checks ensure that each animal is in good health.

Q: How has LubriSynHA fit into your daily routine?

LubriSynHA is a daily part of our routine. It is administered each day with their morning feed. We use the gallon size LubriSynHA that comes with a pump so it is very easy to make sure each horse gets their dose.

Q: Have you noticed a difference in your or your horse’s performance since starting a daily regimen of LubriSynHA?

Yes, very much so. I take it myself and I notice that performing daily tasks is easier and takes less of a toll on my body. I definitely notice a huge difference in my horses. Their training is consistent and they recover much more quickly.

Q: Do you inject your horses?

I do still inject in severe cases, but it is not anywhere near as much as I used to.

Q: What is the most important piece of advice you can give to a young horseman?

The most important advice I can give is that consistency and hard work go a long way.

Here is the Smith Family on vacation on Maui, their favorite vacation spot.

Q: Where is your favorite vacation spot?

My family and I love to visit Hawaii. Obviously, horses are a huge responsibility and it can be difficult to get away, but we try to when we can. It is very important to take time off and recharge!

Q: Do you have any other pets?

Naturally, our farm has several dogs. We are definitely dog lovers.

Q: What do you see yourself doing in 5 years? 10 years? 25 years?

I will probably be doing the only thing I have ever wanted to do: training horses.

LubriSynHA Stars Highlight Weekend Stake Races!


This weekend (Aug 17th and Aug 18th) marks the running of the Arlington Million among other well-known stake races coast to coast.  Every horse owner and trainer’s dream is to have horses in their barn good enough to compete in the high caliber stake races.  LubrisynHA is well represented this weekend from coast to coast.

Starting off at Saratoga Racecourse, the feature races are the Sword Dancer, a grade I race on the turf and the Alabama Stakes, also a grade I for 3-year-old fillies.  Trainer Todd Pletcher sends out the Kentucky Oaks winner Princess of Sylmar and Galloping Giraffe in the Alabama.  Princess of Sylmar, owned by King of Prussia stables will be the favorite in this event.  Both of those entrants use LubrisynHA to maintain joint health.

Todd Pletcher trainee Princess of Sylmar goes against a field of 6 in the Grade I Alabama Stakes at Saratoga Racecourse.

Heading to Chi-town and Arlington Park, LubrisynHA has several runners. In the Secretariat Stakes, Admiral Kitten for trainer Mike Maker and Jack Milton who is trained by Todd Pletcher.  In the Beverly D, Artemus Kitten again for trainer Maker, and the talented west coast shipper Marketing Mix for trainer Tom Proctor will race in the filly and mare turf event.

The Arlington Million will feature Timeraine from the Proctor barn along with an overseas entry named Grandeur who is trained by Jeremy Noseda, another trainer who uses LubrisynHA.

On the journey, we stop at Delaware Park to see the entries in the Roseanna Stakes.  Trainer Tony Dutrow sends out Welcome Guest in the Roseanna.  Trainer Dutrow keeps his stock on LubriSynHA as a preventative tool.

We keep heading south to Gulfstream Park where their feature race is the Paseana Stakes.  LubrisynHA user, Gerald Procino will put the saddle on Isabelle’s Thunder at the Hallandale, FL track.

Our journey takes us slightly to the west to Shreveport, LA and Louisiana Downs.  Trainer Tom Amoss will send out several runners on their Louisiana Cup Day.  We head up at Canterbury Park in Minnesota, Tom Proctor will send out Lily the Pink in the Minnesota HBPA Distaff.  Ironically Scott Stevens who will ride the Proctor trainee is a LubriSynHA user.


Trainer Todd Pletcher

“Since we’ve started using LubriSynHA, we’ve noticed the quality of the joint is much better. Would I recommend LubriSynHA? Absolutely not!  I want to keep it all to myself!”  Multiple Eclipse Award winning trainer, Todd Pletcher.


That is just a few of the LubriSynHA users  this weekend that will be racing and trying for that big purse money. LubriSynHA is familiar with all disciplines of the equine industry. From Mountaineer Park to Saratoga Racecourse, no horse is not worth being fed LubriSynHA on a daily basis. When it comes to joint health, rebuilding cartilage will only do so much to keep a joint healthy. The key to healthy joints is the high molecular weight of LubriSynHA.   LubriSynHA is a small price to pay when it comes to keeping your horse sound and in the winner’s circle!


You Don’t Have to go Lame Waiting for Adequan


Are you a user of Adequan? If so, then you have definitely been affected by the lack of product available. Supplies of Adequan i.m., a polysulfated glycosaminoglycan (PSGAG) approved by the FDA to treat joint problems in horses and dogs have been extremely limited or non-existent over the past few months. Due to FDA driven renovations to meet enhanced quality standards, Luitpold, manufacturer of Adequan, has issued several press releases about their shortage and when it is expected to be available again.

LubriSyn blanket

“We had been giving our gelding injections in the hocks and hips with little success. I heard about LubriSyn from a friend and noticed a significant change in our old Guy soon after we started treatment.” Celeste Hudgens

Why let your four-legged friends and partners suffer while you wait for product to be available again? Introducing LubriSynHA into your animals’ routine is a safe, cost-effective way to reduce or even eliminate injections for both horses and dogs. LubriSynHA’s patented all-natural, bio-identical hyaluronic acid naturally lubricates joints to relieve pain and inflammation. Isn’t it time you stopped waiting?


Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Facility Welcomes Dr. Steven Allday.

Alldayway Oldfriends


Dr. Steve Allday, DVM Voted Newest Board Member of Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Facility



(July 15, 2013) Halstrum, LLC and Old Friends announce that Dr. Steven Allday, DVM was voted onto the Board of Directors of Old Friends, a 501C-3 Retired Thoroughbred Racehorse Facility in Lexington, KY.


Dr. Steve Allday has specialized in Equine sports medicine with a focus on Thoroughbreds for more than 25 years. He has treated such luminaries of the turf as 1992 Horse of the Year A.P. Indy, the “Invincible” Cigar, 1997 Horse of the Year Favorite Trick, as well as winners of 13 Triple Crown races and 29 Breeders’ Cup races. His expertise has been in demand across the country, from Hollywood Park to Belmont, and across the pond in Newmarket and Curragh.


In addition to his veterinary practice Dr. Allday is also an entrepreneur in the industry of natural equine health care. He is the founder and CEO of Halstrum, LLC, makers of the joint care supplements LubriSynHA for horses, pets, humans, and livestock, and of Re- Borne, LLC., makers of Re-Borne, a unique formulation of concentrated bovine colostrum that is the natural alternative for antibiotics, steroids and hormones in both equines and canines.


Dr. Allday has even transferred his equine skills into the saddle, become a prominent figure in one of the nation’s fastest-growing equine sports: team roping.


“I am so excited to be a member of the Old Friends team,” said Allday. “The continuous care of Thoroughbreds beyond their racing and breeding careers is imperative to the industry and I am looking forward to upholding its mission.”


Old Friends was founded in 2003 by former Boston Globe film critic, Michael Blowen, and now cares for over 130 horses across three states, most of them stallions whose racing and breeding careers have come to an end. The formation of Old Friends kicked into gear when the news broke that Kentucky Derby winner Ferdinand had perished in a slaughterhouse in 2003. “We went from getting five emails a day to hundreds,” notes Blowen.” “We knew such a death could never happen again, and so the plan became to bring at risk racehorses to Old Friends and provide them with a dignified retirement.”
